CERN Accelerating science




Cryogenic Ice Cream Days at CERN | 21 - 22 September 2016   >>

UNIGE in space... hunting astroparticles

Switzerland has a long history of involvement in cosmic-ray physics and space research projects: some of the most notable examples are its pioneering research since the beginning of the 20th century; its co-founding of major European space organisations; its provision of state-of-the-art scientific equipment to major international space agencies and the missions of a Swiss astronaut in the 1990s. >>

ICE-DIP closing workshop - Public session | 14 September

ICE-DIP, the Intel-CERN European Doctorate Industrial Program (see here), is a European Industrial Doctorate scheme (see here) led by CERN. The focus of the project, which launched in 2013, has been the development of techniques for acquiring and processing data that are relevant for the trigger and data-acquisition systems of the LHC experiments. >>

CERN Library | Pauline Gagnon presents the book "Who cares about particle physics? : making sense of the Higgs boson, the Large Hadron Collider and CERN" | 15 September

"Who cares about particle physics? : making sense of the Higgs boson, the Large Hadron Collider and CERN ", by Pauline Gagnon. >>

CMS Create #2 | 3-4 October | Register now!

CMS Create brings together CERN members and students from IPAC Design Genève (see here). The goal is to build a prototype exhibit illustrating what CMS does and how it does it. The exhibit will introduce the world of a particle physics detector to the general public, and to younger visitors in particular.  >>

Geneva Mix & Mash | 13 September | Brasserie des Halles de l'Île

Conference: Probing the warped side of our Universe with gravitational waves and computer simulations | 16 September | Uni Dufour

Probing the warped side of our Universe with gravitational waves and computer simulations, by Kip Thorne, recipient of the Tomalla Prize for Gravity 2016. >>

Conference: Seeing two black holes merge (with gravitational waves!) | 14 September | Uni Dufour

GW150914: the first direct observation of gravitational waves from the inspiral and merger of two black holes - Conference by Prof. Bruce Allen, Albert Einstein Institute Hannover. >>

Cryogenic Safety HSE Seminar | 21 - 23 September 2016

With the LHC being the world’s largest superconducting installation, it’s not surprising that CERN is a world leader in cryogenic safety. >>
